Naveen Bagalkot's experience at IDC IITB Interaction design

Naveen Bagalkot Im talking from my experience of giving interview for PD at IDC, twice, long back. 

The first time I went only with a slide show. Due to circumstances I did not have the time and hence could show only half of one project. Due to whatever reasons, I got rejected. 

Second round, planned a different strategy. 
Printed all my projects into A4 / A3 booklets. I had about 6 /7 of them, and each had detailed the problem, process, and concept in visual forms. Did not carry any digital stuff. When I entered the interview room, I opened the packet and gave two reports to each of the three panel members, thereby maximising the visibility of my ideas, thinking process, projects, etc. And I guess it worked. Made it. 

Take-away: Show and tell your problem choice, process, and ideas through the best means possible. But due to time constraints at the interview, do not restrict to one medium. Take a combination of physical reports (separately bound according to projects / type), and digital stuff. If you can, you can also use one of the web-based UI mock-up tools, and put a couple of UI designs on your phone and show it to the panel. Flood them with your ideas, process, and projects. 

All the best.
